ECL290: A Course on Community and Citizen Science in Conservation

This coming spring, the Center for Community and Citizen Science will be offering a 2 unit “Community and Citizen Science in Conservation” course at UC Davis. The course will involve weekly discussion and exploration of  community and citizen science (CCS) approaches and applications broadly related to conservation. With an emphasis on recent academic literature, each session will focus on a different topic such as equity and justice, project design and implementation, and participant and conservation benefits. Other topics will be identified and explored based on student interest, and students will also have an opportunity to develop ideas for CCS projects within their own research.

Students who complete the course will be eligible to apply for the CCS in Conservation Fellowship, offered annually by the UC Davis Center for Community and Citizen Science.
